Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Report
National Edition 27:59
Produced by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg
Inspiration From Egypt: A May Day Message
Hossam el-Hamalawy, Historian, Activist Reporter,Blogger, from Cairo

The events in Egypt, were a catalyst throughout the Middle East for the
yearnings for democracy and working class empowerment. And, as well the
aspirations & activism of the Egyptians has given inspiration to us here, in the face of a full court press against the working class. The current renaissance of unionism in Egypt should likewise give us inspiration. Hossam el-Hamalawy provides an insightful report on the May Day celebrations in Cairo detailing the continuing conflict between the newly formed independent unions and the state unions which were still being supported by the military on May Day celebrations. He provides a fascinating history of unions in Egypt culminating in their present emergence of a free trade union movement independent of the state with demands for dissolution of the state unions, higher wages and renationization of substantial parts of previously privatized industries.
